Challenges of solar and renewable energy technologies (Presentation Video)
Author(s): Thomas J. Bialek

Paper Abstract

California’s aggressive energy policy goals include a Renewable Portfolio Standard, RPS, which requires 33% of energy produced must come from renewable resources by 2020. Additionally, SDGE as of the end of March 2013 has approximately 23,000 installations of rooftop photovoltaics with a nameplate capacity 171 MW that do not count towards the RPS goal. Renewable resources are intermittent power generators that introduce new challenges to planning, designing and operating a utility grid. SDGE has been developing solutions to these challenges and will discuss this topic further in the plenary talk.
